    Gettin' There

    Alrighty. It's been a long, gluttonous summer. A diet of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (mmm), and Diet Pepsi does not a flattering figure make. So it was off to exercise class again. It's the getting there that's the hard part. No, I don't have to scale large mountains, or cross large rivers. I don't even have to pull a handcart or walk, for that matter. I get to drive my comfy Vangina a total of 2 miles, to a nice air conditioned church cultural hall. But still, it's, um, harrrd.

    But I made it.

    And when we arrived, it seemed the door was locked. But there were kids in there! It took them a few minutes to realize there were no parents around. I guess the key-lady opened the door, the kids ran in, she reached back out to get her new baby, priorities!, and the door was closed. Oops. I saw it as a sign that we should go back to bed. Nobody else really did. Losers.

    So we did a little jumping and kicking and stretching to a very cool mix of excellent 80's music. I love some of those songs, they bring back the best memories of sitting in my brothers room in the basement, it had carpeted walls!, and thinking I was da bomb because he was (is) so cool.

    And then, on the way home (not really on the way, more like the total opposite way but whatever), I had to stop and get a $1 large Diet Coke. I mean, come on people, I can't just give it up cold turkey. Remember, I've tried that, and lasted approximately 2 hours. But here is proof that I can still stretch. Yes, that is my leg all the way up on the counter top. I guess the exercise thing isn't so bad. I just need the getting there part to be better.

    Never apologize for stopping at McD's on the way home. Never.

    That was actually not Granny Babs, it was Phoebe. My mom never would have said that.

    Keli said...

    Ah, yes. Phoebe, I can see you saying something like that, but I was a little surprised when I thought it came from Barb. Not really. You're both very supportive when it comes to my fast food addiction.

    What is this exercise you speak of? I haven't heard a word about it! Must be some new fangled fad....

    I totally think we should have gone back to bed too, but I figured since it was like 98 percent humidity here, I was going to sweat anyway. May as well burn a few calories too right? Love your blog. I'm thinking we live in the same town, just different wards. We'll have to get together some time. I love how I look like I'm making some gang sign in that picture. Niiice.

    I was just thinking of posting about how I just can't exercise for the sake of exercise - I have to have a purpose -like walking to school, going up and down stairs to get to places I want to go, hurrying through airports, you get my drift!

    But I do remember a time many years ago - before Hannah was born actually - when a group of us exercised at the church - and I loved it!!

    I can get together with other women and listen to old music and actually enjoy exercising.

    Trouble is, my peers aren't into that so much anymore - so enjoy while you can!!

    (And don't tell Phoebe, but I took the kids to McDonald's last night for dinner - Henry said, when I suggested it, "I've never been there for dinner. Only for lunch. But we could try it."

    I really didn't know how to get to any other fast food joints!!)

    Keli, Congrats on your work out, you are a great example...but I am confused about the back to school dance...I clicked on the link below for last years dance, but isn't there supposed to be a video or something of you dancing around on a table or something...I really want to see that.....:)
